If you’re familiar with the Bible, you know the fate of Christ after his crucifixion and resurrection, but what about the twelve disciples who followed him?
The original recipients of the Great Commission are shrouded in a bit of mystery in the Bible itself. With the exception of Judas Iscariot, whose fate is well documented after his betrayal of Christ, only James the Greater’s death is shared in the Good Book. Here’s what happened to the other ten apostles who shared Jesus’s life and message, according to myth, legend and apocryphal tales.
Because these lives aren’t chronicled in any detail in the Bible, it’s not actual gospel and as such, should be taken with a grain of salt. However they lived and died after Christ’s resurrection, though, it’s safe to say they accomplished much in the name of the Great Commission. After all, the message of Jesus has been spread to all corners of the globe and has become one of the world’s most widely followed religions.
